Installed from a live USB stick & there was an entry created in /etc/fstab to mount the USB stick.

fstab create process should probably ignore the USB boot device as it is unlikely to be available to the system after install.

Did you install using the Debian Installer ("Install Tanglu" option in the boot menu), or the live-installer?

I've got the same problem when using the Debian installer. It creates two entries in /etc/fstab for the two partitions on the install usb stick using the device files (/dev/sdXY).

If you connect external hard drives or another stick after the installation it gets mounted at /media/usb0 or /media/usb1 instead of /media/$USER/label_of_partition. This was very confusing for my backup script ;-). Removing thoses entries in /etc/fstab fixes the problem.

The problem did not occur with the live installer.

Can you check with the latest Tanglu release (Tanglu 3.0 (Chromodoris willani)) if this issue still exists?
